Fall in Arizona

It’s Fall. I finally had to turn on the hot water to take a shower. I finally turned off the A/C. Fired up the heater to drive the dust out of the burners. Now all I have to do is find some work.

Moving from Typepad 2

Moving from Typepad to WordPress went smoothly for the posts and comments, which at the end of the day the conversations are the most part of blogging. Because my blog is heavy with photos of projects and procceedures I have a bunch of work ahead so blogging will light.

Due to the directory structures between the two platforms, my images are not showing up. Currently they are showing up as boxes, which is probably making you cranky. I am working on this.

Thank you for your continued support.

Chinese Drywall is the other guy’s problem

The Chinese Drywall saga takes yet another turn. This time Insurance Companies denying claims and canceling policies. Folks are getting sick, builders are denying responsibility, suppliers are denying responsibility, the states and Federal Government is ‘studying’ the problem, and the insurance companies are saying it is a builder defect and is not insurable. Then they cancel and refuse to provide coverage as it is now a “pre-existing” condition.

Just remember this when the Insurance Industry tells you that the current health care system is just fine.

Hattip to the Bungalow Chronicles for the heads up

Thanks to the folks at foliovision.com and this guide: Moving from Typepad to WordPress: 2009 Guide .

The guide is comprehensive, but complex. If you know your way around websites, hosting, FTP, and things like regex, you can do it yourself. If you are not comfortable with these, they offer a paid service to do it for you. It is 350 bucks, which is worth it if you have a site with a lot of materiel, especially images.

It is not about the money as TypePad is a paid service, but is all about being locked into a system with limited expansion, terrible tech support, and regaining my freedom.
